A little girl standing in front of a mirror
She is staring her reflection with horror
Her best friend said that she was fat and ugly
“Yes she is my best friend”, BARELY!!!
She wishes herself to be a model
Having fans and popping bottles
Verbal abuse day after day
And her parents think she is okay
She sits in the corner of her room so lonely and so sad
Even the boy she has a crush on treats her bad
She takes it upon herself to cut the fat
Accidently stabbing her veins while walking by is a black cat
Her family wonders “Why did my daughter fall”
Because she realized that she is Not A Barbie Doll

I heard that a girl cut herself because her friend said she was fat and ugly and I felt that things like this need to be spoken about
